A very interesting tour with lots of information about the Soweto uprising. The tour was a pleasant length (2.5 hours) and we visited many historical sites related to the Soweto uprising and apartheid in general. Thabo is an sympatic Guy who knows Soweto well and had a lot of knowledge about life and history in the area. We can recommend the tour to everyone.

Thabo was an incredible tour guide through the history surrounding the Soweto neighborhoods, particularly the Jabulani neighborhood and the deadly June 16 1976 student-led protest that began in Soweto and spread countrywide after turning deadly, traced back to policies of the Apartheid government. But beyond the history, we also learned a lot about the region, people, languages, and culture. We could not have asked for a more informative guide and made our day truly memorable. Thank you, Thabo!
